SFSU's Insights About Peer Learning Pedagogy

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

ELI REVIEW -- Since spring 2015, a group of instructors at San Francisco State University have been using Eli Review to facilitate peer learning. Whether in traditional first/second-year writing classes or in the redesigned hybrid course for second year writing at SFSU, these instructors have found that Eli Review compliments the writing process. And according to the end-of-the-semester surveys for an IRB-approved study, their students agree.

In fall 2016, only 39 percent of 70 students reported that their experiences with peer learning prior to the course were very or somewhat useful; a whopping 94 percent of them found peer learning very or somewhat useful after using Eli Review.
